12 Most Powerful Quotes On Grace

You are so weak. Give up to grace.

― Rumi

Grace is what picks me up and lifts my wings high above and I fly! Grace always conquers! Be graceful in everything; in anger, in sadness, in joy, in kindness, in unkindness, retain grace with you!
― C. JoyBell C.

When grace moves in… guilt moves out
Max Lucado

When Catherine told me about this (tragedy nearby), I could only say, shocked, “Dear God, that family needs grace.”
She replied firmly, “That family needs casseroles,” and then proceeded to organize the entire neighborhood into bringing that family dinner, in shifts, every single night, for an entire year. I do not know if my sister fully recognizes that this IS grace.
Elizabeth Gilbert

Grace will follow us even when we are going the wrong way.
― Ricky Maye

quotes on grace

A sure way of retaining the grace of heaven is to disregard outward appearances, and diligently to cultivate such things as foster amendment of life and fervour of soul, rather than to cultivate those qualities that seem most popular.
Thomas à Kempis

It is unearned love–the love that goes before, that greets us on the way. It’s the help you receive when you have no bright ideas left, when you are empty and desperate and have discovered that your best thinking and most charming charm have failed you. Grace is the light or electricity or juice or breeze that takes you from that isolated place and puts you with others who are as startled and embarrassed and eventually grateful as you are to be there.
Anne Lamott

This grace of God is a very great, strong, mighty and active thing. It does not lie asleep in the soul. Grace hears, leads, drives, draws, changes, works all in man, and lets itself be distinctly felt and experienced. It is hidden, but its works are evident.”
Martin Luther

Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better.
Caroline Myss

We are suspicious of grace. We are afraid of the very lavishness of the gift.
Madeleine L’Engle

Grace is the permanent climate of divine kindness; the perennial infusion of springtime into the winter of bleakness.
― John O’Donohue

Grace does not work like a penny in a slot machine. Grace will move you only when you want it to move you, and only when you let it move you. The supernatural order supposes the freedom of the natural order, but it does not destroy it.
Fulton J. Sheen

  1. Loved Elizabeth Gilbert’s quote about the casseroles. I am such a practical person and always try to find the ‘need’ to fill when there is a crisis. I have lived through so many crises’ and kind words from others don’t go nearly as far a a helping hand. Also loved the picture of the word between the mountains. And Max Lucado always says it well. On the flip side, it is just as important to give grace as it is to be a recipient. One of the ways we do this is to not stand in judgment when we see someone less fortunate than ourselves. Great quotes. Thanks Corinne

  2. Thank you for compiling these quotes, Corinne. Many I’ve not seen before.

    The Sheen quote at the end sums grace up well – grace moves through you if you want it and if you’ll let it. Here’s to receiving and being more open to grace in our lives.

  3. Beautiful quotes, Corinne. I remember when my dad had passed away, our society ladies brought food for us everyday, each lady had a fixed date and meal assigned to her by the group. Such gestures help in their own way, when our neighbor passed away, my mom was first in line to serve them hot food and support. Love this quote by Rumi- “You are so weak. Give up to grace.The ocean takes care of each wave till it gets to shore.
    You need more help than you know.”

  4. This grace of God is a very great, strong, mighty and active thing. It does not lie asleep in the soul. Grace hears, leads, drives, draws, changes, works all in man, and lets itself be distinctly felt and experienced. It is hidden, but its works are evident.”
    ― Martin Luther

    My favorite. x

  5. We are suspicious of grace… true! So true.. especially in my case. I should really learn to accept and embrace grace!

  6. Love all of them, but especially the one by Carolyn Myss, “Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better.” Thanks for the great quotes, Corinne!

  7. These are beautiful, Corinne. I also love your picture as well. My favorite as well is “Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better.”
    ― Caroline Myss
